I've used their HF-850 radio in the Finnish Air Force in 1995. The company is still around, at http://www.rohde-schwarz.com. > What kind of machine could it be? Maybe it is supposed to control a radio that transmits a digital signal? BTW, the radio system in the Air Force was using two modem lines (300 baud if I remember correctly), one for the data stream and another for the command stream. Given that phone lines are supposed to be a scarce resource in war time, I wonder how come they didn't think of some encapsulation for telling apart commands and data. We also used the HF-850 as a very expensive Morse code transmitter and receiver. Marko Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
